In October 2014 Claudia moved together with her (former) partner, Lars, and their son Fadi (2011) from still beloved Amsterdam to beautiful and pure Portugal. In the year of arrival, they started working at the bed and breakfast of Lars his parents, also located at the Costa de Prata (Silver Coast) in central Portugal. After a year of hard work and expanding the business with several accommodations, the realization arose that this is what they want to keep doing in the future. Lars took over his parents B&B. And Claudia decided to buy an old farmhouse to turn it into her own dream...

Old Portuguese winery

The wish to renovate an old house, and to completely furnish it as wished, has always been there. This wish was fulfilled faster than thought; in december 2015 she came across an old quinta (Portuguese wine farm) for sale, consisting of several buildings with original wine presses and authentic beautiful stone walls. There was no time to waist; this had to be bought as soon as possible! :))

After a quick trip back 'home' to Amsterdam, Claudia's apartment was sold within two weeks, and everything about the new house arranged. The renovation of Quinta Ninho d'águia would start in May 2016. 

Boutique Guesthouse

She did not just want a house with apartments to rent out. It had to be a place where you would feel at home through personality and attention to the interior, and of course mainly to the guests. The current three apartments have been lovingly decorated with an eclectic mix of Portuguese vintage, finds, curiosities and modern purchases. The term "Boutique Guesthouse" is also used for this type of rental. 

Swimming pool

In the garden is a large oval swimming pool, 11 x 5 meters and 150 cm deep, surrounded by a spacious tiled terrace with sunbeds.


Next to the pool we have a cozy corner where the bar is. There is a fridge at this bar where you can get your own drink. You indicate on the checklist what you have taken, and at the end of the week you count it with us. 

Future of Quinta Ninho d'águia

The quinta stands on a land of two hectares and consists of a large garden and a valley (named Ninho de Águia). The wish is to have a maximum of five exclusive accommodations in the future, of which two in the valley. This to ensure the small scale, personality and tranquility of this unique place.
